Tensioner pulley too skinny. Turned a new one and used the bearing from the plastic junk.

Stoopid hose #2...............out comes the aluminum for a temporary tube. My daughter has a job to do at the next Hogtown Metal Shaping Meet. Hopefully she can do a better job then me. PCM will need to be reprogrammed after installing the new one.

Tuning........jeez, it's tough for us older guys. Installed a wide band O2 sensor for some WOT pulls.


I played with the tune, reflashing the PCM about 40 times so far.

It's running pretty good but still a lot more to learn and to tune.


I did manage to pull off about 26 MPG (imperial), 22 MPG (US gallon) on a road trip Friday. Sweet....


That's pretty much it for now. Just cruise and enjoy. The hot rod is going into the garage soon. I will start a build thread for that which you may find interesting.......

Car has a 327 with double hump heads, Edelbrock 4 barrel and intake, dual exhaust that gets bigger and then smaller again. Really loud as well.

I picked up an aftermarket AC system and cruise control while I was down there as well.

That's a beautiful car. Especially with those rally wheels, man she sure is a stunner! 69 was a really pretty year, not quite as boxy as the 70 but still had those 4 headlights up front. I drive a camino myself, its a little older, a 65, and it had the 327 aswell before I swapped it for a 454, but its still no where near that nice! Wow!

Being able to take your car to the drags is soooo damn cool! I can't wait to do that again, it's been 30 years!

Ya, you gotta do it before the tree huggers get their way and there are no more strips.

Just in drive, no shifting.
Need to install the control link bars that are in the garage. I will get them in before the next trip to the track.
These times are bunny hop starts.
